Bobigny, France: The domestic violence trial of Franco-Malian superstar singer Aya Nakamura and her former partner was adjourned with neither defendant appearing in court in Paris.

Nakamura and her ex, Vladimir Boudnikoff, a music video producer, were both charged with domestic violence following an argument at their home in the French capital in August.

Lawyers for the pair confirmed the adjournment after a brief court hearing in the Paris suburb of Bobigny where a handful of fans of the 27-year-old had gathered hoping for glimpse of their idol.

Nakamura, whose real name is Aya Danioko, is one of the biggest-selling francophone artists in the world, with 2018 sensation "Djadja" racking up nearly 900 million views on YouTube.

No date was given for the future trial.
